9/8 ~ sad and depressed
Sunday, September 08, 2013      14 comments

Had a lousy evening ~ feeling like I do everything for the MEN in this family, and get nothing in return. We have been going thru' this vicious cycle since the beginning of the year. (It's been a rough year: surgery, partial disability, death, d... Read more
8/26 ~ last week of the challenge
Monday, August 26, 2013      2 comments

One thing I would like to change is my perfectionist attitude. While this sort of thinking can be good, such as working towards a complete black-out during the weekend challenges, it can also backfire in a big way. I still tend to see my progres... Read more

My goal for the 4-week interim is to not gain weight. Sounds easy, but without the daily contact and check-ups, it's very easy to slip up. But I have learned so much about myself since going these challenges, I think I have a fighting chance... Read more

The one thing I learned this time around ~ BLC #22 ~ is that I don't have to eat up to my full points. Many times in the past I would run my nutrition report near the end of the day, and if I have calories left, I would eat. Sometimes it sat wel... Read more

Tired now, and will be more tired later, or as Ed calls it, Re-tired... LOL. Unbeknownst to us, Nick drove 'down south' (won't say exactly where) to pick up a friend. This kid was kicked out of his home by his parents and has no where else ... Read more

My 'staples' shopping list is pretty basic: salad ingredients apples or oranges carrots cabbage onions egg whites reduced fat cheese 4% cottage cheese tortillas almonds cat food (OK, this is for Jack!) fresh fruit on s... Read more

My goal this challenge to be end under 200 pounds. Even 199 will be acceptible. Sounds easy, doesn't it? But I have been bouncing around in the 203-212 area for so long. And I know most of it is because of my emotional eating issues. Between the... Read more

Had a bad evening, after a tiring day. Ed came home with cookies. I've asked him many times not to, but he got them for himself while on the road, and didn't want to end up eating the whole package. Good thinking on his part, not on mine. ... Read more
Interim thoughts...
Saturday, June 01, 2013      2 comments

As the 8-week interim comes to an end, I've been doing a bit of thinking about what I've learned, and what I still have to work on. I've learned that once I give in to temptation, I tend to let all good habits fly out the window. If I have ... Read more

Started reading what I thought would be an article about the dangers of fast food, but it turned out to be about fast food workers. Did you know that 60% of low-wage workers are employed by big corporations? And that almost every one of these co... Read more

I went to a chocolate shop with my friend, Noreen, yesterday, while on our girl's day out. She said she wanted to pick up something small for her mom for Mother's Day, but she also wanted to treat herself. I was just tagging along for the ride, ... Read more

The 8-week break between challenges is fast approaching, and I know that if I don't have a plan, I will sink all of my hard work. So I have chosen the weight goal of 199#. I know it doesn't sound like much, it's 4-10 pounds, depending on what da... Read more

Read today SP feature article, A Focused-Solution Approach to Weight-Loss. And it really struck a chord with me. I tend to let my problems overcome my good sense. It said to look for the exception that proves the rule. No problem happens ... Read more
Cleaning ups and downs...
Friday, March 15, 2013      2 comments

Part of this weekend's challenge is to clean, and for today I chose the no-man's-land in this house, otherwise known as my home office. And I do call the space under the desk ni-man's-land, mainly because it doesn't get cleaned/vacuumed very oft... Read more

Had a tough day yesterday. Babysat for 4 kids aged 10 and under. Had a control struggle with the oldest, and came close to losing it when he told me that I can't tell him what to do because I'm not the boss of him. (Yeah, my teenager used to say... Read more
